In 2007, the Association for Women Lawyers created a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation – AWL Foundation, Inc. – to continue the educational and charitable efforts which we had previously undertaken.
The Foundation funds the annual Virginia Pomeroy Memorial Scholarships to women students at Marquette University and the University of Wisconsin law schools. These scholarships have been awarded by AWL since 1998, and have provided financial assistance of over $100,000 to more than 50 students working to complete their legal education.
Donations to the Foundation are a great way to honor a friend, family member or colleague who has made a difference in your legal career. Celebrate her wedding, the birth of a child, or a new job by helping to pave the future path of a young woman lawyer. Your contributions are tax deductible to the full extent of the law.
Currently, we do not accept donations via credit card. To make a contribution, please send your check to:
c/o Diane S. Diel, S.C.
126 N. Jefferson Street, Suite 402
Milwaukee, WI 53202
Please note if the donation is made in honor of, or in memory of, a specific person.
Thank you for your generosity and support.
